After stopping Luca Doncic, Golden State's Canadian forward, praised • Clay Thompson: "I'm glad the world gets to see what a player he is, and he will continue to be that way for the next 10 years."



The Golden State Warriors defeated Dallas tonight and climbed to a 0-1 lead in the NBA Finals series in the East, much thanks to the good ability of Stephen Kerry who finished as the team’s leading scorer with 21 points.

But not only thanks to him, but also thanks to Andrew Wiggins.

Golden State Canadian forward, who has already forgotten was selected first in the 2014 draft, and played this year for the first time in his career in the All-Star Game of the best league in the world, kept the hot live star in the league - Luca Doncic, tonight, providing an impressive defensive game.

Wiggins stopped Doncic on 20 points, while the Slovenian scored 6 shots out of 18 he took, in 33% from the field.

The Canadian was also excellent on the other side of the field, finishing the first half with 15 points, his record in the half in a playoff game.

He finished the game with 19 points in total, and won many accolades.

American reporter Kevin O'Connor said of him: "Wiggins is proof that players can change for the better, the right situation, the right thought, the criticism of his defense and the choice of shots is over."

It must be said that this is a player who has been slandered quite a bit during his career, and is considered a failed first choice, so the year he was selected to the All-Star there were quite a few who raised an eyebrow.

Andrew Wiggins is proof a player can change for the better.

Right situation.

Right mindset.

All the loud criticism of his shot selection and defensive consistency is over.

Clay Thompson said of Wiggins at the press conference: "I'm glad the world gets to see what an actor he is, and he will continue to be that way for the next 10 years."

"I'm just happy that the world's getting to see who he really is, and that's an incredible wing player and he will be like this for the next 10 years."
